Why does the fire type resist the fairy type?

I know it's a little too late but in my opinion fire has always been a good offensive type and I thought the type was pretty balanced. So why did they buff them defensively?

Fire is average offensively (the only good defense type it hits super effective on is Steel) and weak defensively.

Also, fire destroys forests and Fairies live in forests.

Look at Stealth Rock, then tell me again that Fire type is balanced.

If you sprinkle pixie dust into a fire, it's going to burn.

Rock, ground, water weakness (and they are everywhere)

Resists grass and lolIce

Fire isn't very good defensively IMO.

Fire resists 6 types:
Fire, Grass, Ice, Bug, Steel, and Fairy

Fire is weak to 3 types:
Water, Ground, and Rock

This makes the most sense to me
